Solution

  1. Development itself is a very relative term.
  2. There are many indicators of development. Income of the region through various activities, quality and quantity of population, education, life expectancy, poverty, etc. are some indicators of development, but only a single indicator cannot be the only factor to decide the development of a region.
  3. Population density, age, sex, fertility, mortality, occupational structure, literacy rate, life expectancy, etc. determine the pressure on resources in the region.
  4. The countries which are presently in stage 2 of demographic transition (population explosion phase) are facing the problem of illiteracy and poverty. These countries are least developed countries in the world. For example, many African countries are least development due to illiteracy and poverty.
  5. Hence, we can say that factors like illiteracy, poverty affect the regional development.
